The certified biofuel is almost free of sulfur oxides and offers a CO2 reduction of up to 90% compared to fossil fuels.
In similar news, Marubeni conducted a trial voyage on one of its chartered vessels using a marine biofuel blend, from Vlissingen, the Netherlands to Morgan’s Point, Texas, USA. This is the first biofuel supply to an ethylene carrier in the world.
The ethylene carrier GasChem Dollart was supplied with B25 marine biofuel in Vlissingen, the Netherlands on September 21 2022, consisting of approximately 25% fatty acid methyl ester (FAME), blended with very low sulfur fuel oil (VLSFO).
